president obama says his administration is reviewing the way it collects intelligence. >> what we've seen of the last several years is their capacities continue to develop and expand. and that's why we're initiating a review to make sure that what they're able to do doesn't necessarily mean that's what they should be doing. >> but he offered this defense. >> the national security operations generally have one purpose and that is to make sure that the american people are safe. >> reporter: whether listening in on the leaders of close allies saves lives, the white house didn't have an answer. although it reaffirmed it is reassessing such high level surveillance as part of its overall intelligence review. on the hill today, european lawmakers went head to head with congressional leaders on nsa spying. for the head of the discussion told me their discussion was frank. you had a very stern message to deliver. >> i think we had a very robust and strong message. this mass surveillance which has come through the allegations is something that is disturbing to european citizens. they feel very unea

and specifically the obama administration regulations written for their grandfather plans that might have been allowed to keep going, they wrote regulations summarily in tightly that no one could ever meet the tests. they did this on purpose. they wanted the plan to close to force millions of people out of there are insurance and to populate the new obamacare exchanges. it was not an accident. this was intentional. gerri: it was intentional. do you believe that? i have the sense that the administration is totally on the sixes and sevens. apparently there were not told that the laws i was ready to go public. now you're in telling me that this was all intentional. >> if these changes are going to work and you're going to have the insurance pools working began in healthy people to sign up which means you cannot have them outside of the system by affordable catastrophic coverage it does not have all of these comprehensive benefits mandated by oba. you need any effect to get rid of those policies which is what the law and the regulations are about. the problem for the demonstration here, outwitting
